lead." in national news, president obama's judicial nominees, please take your seats on the bench and when i say bench, i mean you're not getting into the game. if we were to compare the obama white house to an nfl team, i think even many democrats would have to agree it's been on a jacksonville jaguars type losing streak recently. the administration wants its draft picks to play and by draft picks i mean its nominees for the d.c. district appeals court but senate republicans for the third time in as many weeks have blocked an obama nominee to that court which is considered the second most powerful in the country. republicans want to keep the current balance on the court, four judges appointed by a democrat, four judges appointed by a republican. unfair, cry the democrats, whom we should note filibustered several of president george w. bush's nominees back in the first half. republicans say they are doing it because they want to organize the judiciary. d.c. has too many judges on the bench, they say. some democrats want to change the senate rules to require only a simple majority

is just kind of -- i agree. it's just rude. >> he has this historic win, wins 60% in a blue state. obama won by 18 points. he actually won by more than 18 points, he won by 22 points. he wins the latino vote, the women's vote running against a female. "time" magazine comes out, you're fat. >> there's a lot to criticize him for, believe me. >> i think there's a literal component but there's more to it than that. >> i read the article. it's a good article. it doesn't go into is his weight something that should weigh on voters' minds, so to speak, is it something that's going to be a problem. it doesn't discuss that. the only time it comes up in this cheap shot on the cover. >> i'm glad you pointed out that's not what the story is about. the story is about how he is so important to the republican party right now, the direction it decides to take, is it more of a centrist moderate tack or more of a tea party tack and how the 2016 presidential race will be defined around him, and in that sense, he -- >> let's get meta for a second. if whoever is in charge of the cover, if they hadn't done tha

." presidents obama and clinton spent much of the day today, and if you believe the white house, it was all president obama's idea. so much for that anecdote that he once told an aide he can only take clinton in small doses. the day started with obama awarding president clinton the presidential honor of freedom, a award created by president kennedy 50 years ago. >> i'm grateful, bill, as well, for the advice and counsel that you've offered me, on and off the golf course. and most importantly for your life-saving work around the world, which represents the very best in america. so thank you so much. >> afterwards, they gathered along with their wives for a more solemn moment, paying tribute to jfk at arlington national cemetery, as we near the 50th anniversary of his assassination. 50 years later, that eternal flame still burns. and the question surrounding kennedy's death still nag. now a new book by a former "new york times" investigative reporter raises serious and credible questions about the warren commission and whether they got it right. >> there will forever be questions of substance
with the national lead. chris christie could he end of challenging president obama. but at least the president is being a good sport about it. sources tell me president obama called governor christie. he was so far ahead had the polls that his victory wasn't in doubt. the same could be said for the new york city's meryl race, bill de blasio was the first one to win that city in years. he will make all the taxes smell like chanel number 5. to hear conservatives tell it, it's about to turn back into nothing but triple x movie theaters. and it differs from mayor michael bloomberg. as mayor of our largest city, which is largely democratic, bloomberg has urked his -- >> mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me. 55 days, to be exact. >> so congratulations. your candidate in virginia, terry mcauliffe got a victory. but you were used against democrats and i want to get your reaction to your name being used in this attack ad being put out by the nra political victory fund. >> he -- herring will back gun control, gun rationing. a ban in the most popular rifle in american. >> i guess
's weapon. there's more law enforcement inside the terminal. president obama asked about this just minutes ago said that he is concerned about the shooting, he's been getting updates from local authorities. you can see right now that is a shot from kabc outside los angeles international airport, which is just a mess right now in terms of traffic and no one being able to get in and only being able to get out on foot. i want to now bring in sean henry, former executive assistant director for the fbi and president of crown strike which provides security technology services. thanks so much for talking to us. last time we spoke, it was during the navy yard shooting. we have been talking here with two other former fbi officials about possible reasons why this might have happened. it was raised perhaps the shooter was targeting a specific individual. is it also possible the shooter may have been targeting the tsa in general? >> yeah, you know, jake, the police go through a very methodical process when there's an incident like this. first they want to make sure they mitigate the threat and i.d. co
of afghanistan, and if you look at previous draw-downs by president obama, it's very likely that they can make a call and say that last 8,000 to 10,000 troops sometime in the fall and still be able to get them out by the end of the year if they had to. >> chris lawrence at the pentagon, thank you very much. we appreciate it. >>> i want to get deeper into this with these two gentlemen. william cohen served as secretary of defense under president clinton and retired general spider marks, our cnn military analyst. secretary, let me start with you. it was striking that the u.s. decided to come out and take the responsibility for this drone attack and apologize for it. what does it say about this, because we were talking about this a little bit during chris' piece, we're at this very fragile point with hamid karzai, this bilateral security agreement that the u.s. wants the afghan president to sign on to that would basically take the u.s. presence in afghanistan for potentially ten years, perhaps, after 2014 when we are going to draw down most of our forces there. what is what happened yesterday doi
, infinite possibilities. >>> welcome back to "the lead." i'm jim sciutto. today, president barack obama paid tribute to america's veterans by laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns at arlington national cemetery. he also honored the service of the 107-year-old, richard overton, believed to be one of the country's oldest living veterans. >> today our message to all those who have ever worn the uniform of this nation is this. we will stand by your side, whether you're seven days out or like richard, 70 years out. because here in america, we take care of our own. >> veterans are also being honored today by gamers. by now you've heard of the wildly popular video game series, "call of duty." it's a first person virtual realm that puts you in the boots of a fictional american soldier. very realistic. but for activision, the company responsible for the games, the real call of duty is to support our returning veterans. four years ago, ceo bobby cotick founded the call of duty endowment. the goal is to give vets from iraq, afghanistan and other military conflicts the opportunity and tools to fin
that different from what barack obama's position was in 2008. >> which he's moved away from and so has the rest of the country. i think that what you hear in that painful facebook post is the anguish of a sister feeling completely disrespected by her own family member. it's tough enough to be lesbian and gay and trying to raise a family. to have your own family member diss you publicly, it must be horrible. i just wish that the right wing of the republican party would let its candidates out of this prison of having to be so mean-spirited toward a fellow american. we believe in equal rights in this country. the problem in america is not that too many people want to get married. that's not the problem. >> you have done some work for the enzi campaign, who liz cheney is running against, the republican senator, the incumbent. i'm not going to ask you about the specific issue or the specific debate. but republican support for same sex marriage is a mirror reflection of what it is nationally. republicans oppose same sex marriage, majority of them. when van says i wish the right wing wouldn't let the
